Power to Change Any One Thing

Location

Clock in.
 
Name tag
Steal toed boots
Grease rag
Work truck route
 
Jeans ripped
Black dirt
Tools equipped
Red tshirt
 
Break rocks
Fracture bones
Bloody socks
Silent moans
 
Clock out.
 
Homeward bound
Quiet creep
Snoring sounds
Children asleep
 
Kiss good night
Hurry to bed
Shut off light
Awake half dead
 
Wife is gone
Kids in daycare
Not home long
Say a quick prayer
 
Clock in.
 
Name tag
Steal toed boots
Grease rag
Work truck route
 
Cut by dross
Slice skin
Fight with boss
Can't win
 
Build bridges
The graveyard shift
Dig ditches
Turn off fork lift
 
Clock out.
 
Homeward bound
Quiet creep
Snoring sounds
Children asleep
 
It is past din
Laying in bed
Daughter walks in
Shaking her head
 
"If I could rearrange
any single event,
it would be to change
what you do to pay rent."
